Whether you sometimes feel you're not good enough, not smart enough, or just feeling like something is holding you back, your ability to see life's events through a different lens and perspective, and share your story can make dramatic and profound impact on both yourself and others. 

 

If you thought being emotionally and creatively constipated was bad, 

the extended outcome is much worse.

Have you ever wanted to do something special and big with your life like stand-up comedy or telling the world your story, but fear held you back?

 

Do you feel you’re not worthy of taking up space and shining your light?

 

Do you wish you had more confidence and could just break free from limitations and fear and just be who you were born to be?

 

If you’ve answered YES, then THIS IS FOR YOU!

 

Did you know one in four struggle with mental health?

 

Do you know NINETY percent of the population have experienced childhood trauma of some kind?

 

That ONE HUNDRED percent of those who access some form of creative therapy get better results than those who don’t?

Take a moment to think of what your future will look like if you don't choose to

show up in your own life and embrace who you really are. You will only live half a life 

Imagine This:

 

You’ll continue to believe the lies and push people away.

 

You’ll continue to feel worthless, useless, depressed, anxious, lonely, and stuck.

 

But, it doesn’t have to be this way... 

 

You can choose to reclaim your power!

Choose to believe your life is worth living to the fullest!

You deserve to be happy!

Meet Your Trainer

Lizzie Allan on Comedy Therapy

Lizzie Allan's Comedy Writing and Performance graduate thesis was a research performance project exploring the question: Can I use comedy as a therapeutic tool to smash the stigma surrounding addiction and mental health issues? She shared her own story to an audience of people with similar lived experience and the feedback was astonishing! The show snowballed. Invited to perform for various mental health and recovery organizations, her vulnerability mixed with humour was having a profound, transformative impact.

 

She harnesses the healing power of comedy to help articulate those difficult experiences and inspire human connections with the sparks of shared laughter. 

 

Lizzie develops and teaches courses, workshops, tutorials, and webinars, is an acclaimed TED speaker, presenter, author, host, and coach, all of which comes from her unique combination of therapeutic processes, with comedy writing and performance techniques, all wrapped around a supportive and joyful community. Comedy, therapy, and community are truly at the heart of Hilarapy. 

 

Students are met with connection and safety surrounded by their peers in class and begin making sense of their experiences, identifying the absurdities and finding the universal humour. By telling their stories, it also gives purpose, validity, and meaning to those experiences while simultaneously washing away the stigma and shame that was attached for so long. Others identify with them and their story while confidence replaces stigma. These are some of the powerful health benefits of laughter when woven in a very specific way with therapeutic modalities, comedy writing and performance techniques, within a safe and supportive community.

What People Say

This was just the most amazing experience because suddenly I was surrounded by people

who understood my mental health issues, which a lot of people don't.

Carolyn B.

Everyone just held me through the whole thing and helped me. It fulfilled my life.

If you're feeling a little bit down, this is the online therapy course for you.

Donna C.

The biggest therapeutic part of this was getting to know that you're not alone in your insanity.

Mental illness or addiction wants to separate us and isolate us. This reminds you

that you're not the only one who has crazy thoughts or has struggled.
